Planning a conference in New York City can involve quite a bit of maneuvering (and creativity!). It can always be a challenge to get dozens or even hundreds or thousands of attendees to the right place and keep them on schedule during one or more days, but accomplishing this in a place as packed and gridlocked as NYC can make conference planning even more complicted. Thankfully, Manhattan has some of the best and most versatile conference venues in the world -- spaces with in-house A/V, multiple breakout rooms (or space to create them), and a variety of conference catering options.
